Mehitabel Braybrooke was one of the most fascinating and infamous women from the early colonial period, yet no one has ever told her story…until now. Mehitabel was born in Ipswich, Massachusetts in 1652 to a prosperous land owner but her birth mother was his indentured servant. She is well known in colonial history as an arsonist, a drunk and as an accused witch during the Salem witchcraft hysteria of 1692.
In the Shadow of Salem: The Redemption of Mehitabel Braybrooke is under contract by Heritage Beacon, an imprint of Lighthouse Publishing of the Carolinas. The book is scheduled for release in June 2018.
